Description

This beautiful handmade unlined journal contains 160 blank pages, and the pretty braided coptic binding allows it to lay completely flat when open for easy writing or sketching. The cover is made from colorful flower fabric that I bought on a trip to Tokyo, Japan and then turned into book cloth by backing it with paper (see photos).

Size: 4.5"x6"
Paper: 100% recycled 32lb text filler pages

I made this beautiful fabric into book cloth at a workshop at Asheville Bookworks. Book cloth is a paper-backed cloth - if you tried to put glue directly on fabric and glue it to a cover it would soak all the way through, but this way the paper acts as a barrier.

The book is a sturdy 4.5"x6" with dense bookboard covers that won't warp even in the most humid of climates. It contains 160 pages of gorgeous speckled creamy filler paper that I'm so excited about - it's made by a family-owned paper mill called French Paper Co. in Michigan that makes only 100% recycled papers using hydro electric power.

Whether you're going to write, sketch, draw, or practice your calligraphy, this lay-flat journal will last you a long time and is even more beautiful in person. It also makes lovely gift for a new beginning.
